2009-05-02ibft: fix the display of a few fields in the NIC attribute structure in sysfsAshutosh Naik1-2/+2
Fix the display of a few fields in the iBFT NIC attribute structure in sysfs. Ensure that, if the DHCP IP address and the subnet mask for the interface is present in the iBFT NIC structure, the corresponding entries are created in sysfs tree for the device. This would hence create the additional entries in the tree based on the iBFT table and would not delete any existing entries.

But NR_CPUS proportional isn't good calculation. In general, possibility of lock contention is proportional to the number of online cpus, not theorical maximum cpus (NR_CPUS). The current kernel has generic percpu-counter stuff. using it is right way. it makes code simplify and percpu_counter_read_positive() don't make underflow issue.

2009-05-02alpha: binfmt_aout fixIvan Kokshaysky4-6/+23
This fixes the problem introduced by commit 3bfacef412 (get rid of special-casing the /sbin/loader on alpha): osf/1 ecoff binary segfaults when binfmt_aout built as module. That happens because aout binary handler gets on the top of the binfmt list due to late registration, and kernel attempts to execute the binary without preparatory work that must be done by binfmt_loader. Fixed by changing the registration order of the default binfmt handlers using list_add_tail() and introducing insert_binfmt() function which places new handler on the top of the binfmt list. This might be generally useful for installing arch-specific frontends for default handlers or just for overriding them.

2009-05-02vgacon: return the upper half of 512 character fontsStefan Bader1-1/+1
Uwe Geuder noted that he gets random bitmaps on a text console if he tried to type extended characters (like the e acute). For him everything above unicode 0xa0 was corrupted. After some digging there seems to be a little culprit in vgacon since the beginning of ages (well git). The function vgacon_font_get will store the number of characters correctly in font->charcount but then calls to vgacon_do_font_op(..., 0, 0). Which means only the lower 256 characters are actually stored to the fontdata. The rest is left untouched. So the next time that saved data is used, the garbled font appears. This happens on every switch between text consoles.

2009-05-02memcg: fix mem_cgroup_shrink_usage()Daisuke Nishimura3-25/+20
Current mem_cgroup_shrink_usage() has two problems. 1. It doesn't call mem_cgroup_out_of_memory and doesn't update last_oom_jiffies, so pagefault_out_of_memory invokes global OOM. 2. Considering hierarchy, shrinking has to be done from the mem_over_limit, not from the memcg which the page would be charged to. mem_cgroup_try_charge_swapin() does all of these things properly, so we use it and call cancel_charge_swapin when it succeeded. The name of "shrink_usage" is not appropriate for this behavior, so we change it too.

2009-05-02pagemap: require aligned-length, non-null reads of /proc/pid/pagemapVitaly Mayatskikh1-0/+4
The intention of commit aae8679b0ebcaa92f99c1c3cb0cd651594a43915 ("pagemap: fix bug in add_to_pagemap, require aligned-length reads of /proc/pid/pagemap") was to force reads of /proc/pid/pagemap to be a multiple of 8 bytes, but now it allows to read 0 bytes, which actually puts some data to user's buffer. According to POSIX, if count is zero, read() should return zero and has no other results.

2009-05-02mm: close page_mkwrite racesNick Piggin3-44/+98
Change page_mkwrite to allow implementations to return with the page locked, and also change it's callers (in page fault paths) to hold the lock until the page is marked dirty. This allows the filesystem to have full control of page dirtying events coming from the VM. Rather than simply hold the page locked over the page_mkwrite call, we call page_mkwrite with the page unlocked and allow callers to return with it locked, so filesystems can avoid LOR conditions with page lock. The problem with the current scheme is this: a filesystem that wants to associate some metadata with a page as long as the page is dirty, will perform this manipulation in its ->page_mkwrite. It currently then must return with the page unlocked and may not hold any other locks (according to existing page_mkwrite convention). In this window, the VM could write out the page, clearing page-dirty. The filesystem has no good way to detect that a dirty pte is about to be attached, so it will happily write out the page, at which point, the filesystem may manipulate the metadata to reflect that the page is no longer dirty. It is not always possible to perform the required metadata manipulation in ->set_page_dirty, because that function cannot block or fail. The filesystem may need to allocate some data structure, for example. And the VM cannot mark the pte dirty before page_mkwrite, because page_mkwrite is allowed to fail, so we must not allow any window where the page could be written to if page_mkwrite does fail. This solution of holding the page locked over the 3 critical operations (page_mkwrite, setting the pte dirty, and finally setting the page dirty) closes out races nicely, preventing page cleaning for writeout being initiated in that window. This provides the filesystem with a strong synchronisation against the VM here. - Sage needs this race closed for ceph filesystem. - Trond for NFS (http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12913). - I need it for fsblock. - I suspect other filesystems may need it too (eg. btrfs). - I have converted buffer.c to the new locking. Even simple block allocation under dirty pages might be susceptible to i_size changing under partial page at the end of file (we also have a buffer.c-side problem here, but it cannot be fixed properly without this patch). - Other filesystems (eg. NFS, maybe btrfs) will need to change their page_mkwrite functions themselves. [ This also moves page_mkwrite another step closer to fault, which should eventually allow page_mkwrite to be moved into ->fault, and thus avoiding a filesystem calldown and page lock/unlock cycle in __do_fault. ] [akpm@linux-foundation.org: fix derefs of NULL ->mapping] Cc: Sage Weil <sage@newdream.net> Cc: Trond Myklebust <trond.myklebust@fys.uio.no> Signed-off-by: Nick Piggin <npiggin@suse.de> Cc: Valdis Kletnieks <Valdis.Kletnieks@vt.edu> Cc: <stable@kernel.org> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>

2009-05-02acpica: validate package element more carefully in acpi_rs_get_pci_routing_table_lengthRobert Moore1-0/+7
acpi_rs_get_pci_routing_table_length is not performing sufficient validation on the package returned from _PRT. It assumes a package of packages and fails/faults if this is not the case. We should validate each subpackage when extracted from the parent package, and not accept objects of the wrong type, since that will just cause the scanning to fail (likely with a kernel oops). This can only happen with a serious BIOS bug, and is accompanied by a warning something like this: ACPI Warning (nspredef-0949): \_SB_.PCI0.PEG4._PRT: Return Package type mismatch at index 0 - found Integer, expected Package [20090320] Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>

2009-05-01kbuild, modpost: Check the section flags, to catch missing "ax"/"aw"Anders Kaseorg1-32/+19
When you put .section ".foo" in an assembly file instead of .section "foo", "ax" , one of the possible symptoms is that modpost will see an ld-generated section name ".foo.1" in section_rel() or section_rela(). But this heuristic has two problems: it will miss a bad section that has no relocations, and it will incorrectly flag many gcc-generated sections as bad when compiling with -ffunction-sections -fdata-sections. On mips it fixes a lot of bogus warnings with gcc 4.4.0 lije this one: WARNING: crypto/cryptd.o (.text.T.349): unexpected section name. So instead of checking whether the section name matches a particular pattern, we directly check for a missing SHF_ALLOC in the section flags.

2009-05-01kbuild: fix Module.markers permission error under cygwinCedric Hombourger1-0/+1
While building the kernel, we end-up calling modpost with -K and -M options for the same file (Modules.markers). This is resulting in modpost's main function calling read_markers() and then write_markers() on the same file. We then have read_markers() mmap'ing the file, and writer_markers() opening that same file for writing. The issue is that read_markers() exits without munmap'ing the file and is as a matter holding a reference on Modules.markers. When write_markers() is opening that very same file for writing, we still have a reference on it and cygwin (Windows?) is then making fopen() fail with EPERM. Calling release_file() before exiting read_markers() clears that reference (and memory leak) and fopen() then succeeds. Tested on both cygwin (1.3.22) and Linux. Also ran modpost within valgrind on Linux to make sure that the munmap'ed file was not accessed after read_markers() Signed-off-by: Cedric Hombourger <chombourger@gmail.com> Cc: <stable@kernel.org> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Sam Ravnborg <sam@ravnborg.org>

The ocfs2 directory index updates two blocks when we remove an entry - the dx root and the dx leaf. OCFS2_DELETE_INODE_CREDITS was only accounting for the dx leaf.
